Richie's younger brother Charlie and his wife Rosalind flew in from NY today on AA #1. Long before they landed, I knew they'd had an 18-minute delay taking off. I saw them over Kansas and then again crossing into Nevada. "How can this be?" you scratch your head. All you have to do is put in the name of the airline and the flight number and sit back. All of the data (altitude, air speed, estimated arrival time, departure time) pops up including a map of the United States with "your" plane's position and flight path. Fascinating!

Got the bags, got in the car and headed for Main Street Cafe, El Segundo (previously reviewed.) What is new there is an amazing addition to the toilets!

The Mens' and Womens' are separate rooms, but each has a framed & lighted color photo of a Caribbean beach -- white sand, turquoise sea, palm trees ... and sound! One hears the gentle surf and a bird twittering! How cool is THAT?
